Another Criminal Conviction Under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act for Wind Farms

PacifiCorp Energy has agreed to pay $2.5 million to settle charges arising from bird deaths at two of its wind farms located in Wyoming. PacifiCorp pled guilty in Wyoming federal court to two misdemeanor violations of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and was sentenced to five years' probation. The company also agreed to institute a compliance program to prevent bird deaths at the utility's four commercial wind farms in Wyoming.

Pandy, it would be curious, and interesting to see just what constitutes the actions this company promises to take to "prevent " bird deaths at their wind turbine complex. Sounds like patronization to me.
